There are three Healing Birth Practitioner Training course scholarships up for grabs. Details on these and links to apply can be found below.
Have a read of the information below and if you believe you fit the criteria for one or more of the scholarships, you are welcome to apply. Carla and her team will read through the applications and make a decision about who will receive them within 2 weeks of the course commencement date. Successful applicants will be notified via email.
Please note that there are typically a lot of applications and it is a really tough time deciding who to gift them to. If you are unsuccessful with your application(s) know that there will be another course being held before long and that you are more than welcome to apply for the same scholarship(s) again... your determination and eagerness will be noted!
Scholarship application closing dates: 8th April (Australian course); 1st July (July course)
The course fee is fully covered (zero cost to attend the course). This will be awarded to an applicant who has a passion for and commitment towards working to support indigenous women, birth givers and their families, incorporating respectful and culturally aware practices into all aspects of any birth trauma healing work that they do.
Personal Passion Scholarship
80% of the course fee is covered (cost is $380 to attend the course - can be paid off for as little as $20 per week over 19 weeks). This will be awarded to an applicant who can demonstrate an avid passion around birth trauma support work, but whose financial position would not be able to support paying the full fee.
Community Commitment Scholarship
The course fee is fully covered (zero cost to attend the course). This will be awarded to an applicant who can demonstrate prior commitment to supporting holistic birth-related support, and who intends to continue to develop strategies to serve birthing families outside of paid birth trauma support work.
